Stealth Computer has introduced the WPC-500F, a waterproof rugged small form factor computer for harsh environments.
The new Stealth WPC-500F is a rugged PC that is completely water-tight, surviving liquids, chemicals, dust and dirt intrusion, meeting IP67/NEMA 6 environmental specifications. Designed without cooling fans the internal CPU is cooled through advanced heat pipe technology. The rugged aluminum chassis also acts as a heat sink to dissipate internal heat and provide noise free operation.
Stealth's WPC-500F extreme environment PC offers tremendous power in a tiny package that measures only; 7.51"(W) x 11.37"(D) x 2.97"(H) or (191 x 298 x 75.5 mm) yet surpasses the performance of most industrial and embedded PCs available today. Systems utilize Intel's latest Atom processor technology for maximum performance and power efficiency.
"The WPC-500F provides the most environmental protection of any PC that we have offered to date. The machine is completely sealed on all six sides and can withstand the harshest of environments." stated Ed Boutilier President & CEO of Stealth.com Inc.
The WPC-500F extreme environment PC features power, video, serial and USB connections that are coupled through water-tight, locking bayonet style connectors typical of military designed hardware. The WPC-500F is built utilizing special high performance hard drives that can withstand extreme temperatures, high vibration, high humidity, as well as high altitudes. For applications that require even higher shock and vibration resistance an optional SSD (Solid State Hard Drive) is available.
The durable water tight PC operates from a wide range of DC input power (10-30VDC) making it an ideal fit for mobile/marine, field and transportation based applications. Systems are compatible with Microsoft Vista/XP, Linux etc and can be custom configured to meet the exact needs of the OEM or end user. A special mounting bracket comes standard with each unit allowing for the PC to be easily mounted in control panels, walls, consoles, etc
Stealth products are ideal for demanding applications within the Industrial, Commercial, Scientific Research, Military, Marine, Public Safety, Utility, Transportation, Mining and Telecommunications markets. Stealth is now booking orders for the WPC-500F for delivery in early July, 2009. Basic configurations of the waterproof PC start at $1995.00 USD.
